I am researching my 2x great-grandmother. Her life has been quite the mystery.
Ann Norah O'Brien Birth ABT 1860 • England Death 16 JAN 1923 • Exeter, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom
She married George Edward Goode in 1901.
Marriage 28 Dec 1901 The register office, Stroud, Gloucestershire, England George Edward Goode
I found another marriage certificate between Sarah Ann Nutt and George Edward Goode in 1894.
Note that it says Sarah Ann Nutt was deceased by 1901 as it says George was a widower on his marriage certificate to Norah O'Brien.
I tried to look for Sarah Ann Goode's death record in the GRO index.
There are no records that match the timeframe needed for George to be a widower by 1901. He was also co-habitating with Norah around 1899.
Is it possible that he lied about it so he could marry again or that Sarah ran off and left the country?
Extra info: She had 5 illegitimate children and co-habitated with Edward Goode before they married.
